Transfer to Scenic Eclipse to commence your South American immersion.

Day 3 - San Blas Islands (Panama)

Spend the day relaxing in this beautiful archipelago, home to the Kuna people and surrounded by turquoise water and coral reefs swarming with marine life, pristine sandy beaches and coconut palms.

Day 4 - Panama Canal Transit

One of life's great experiences is to transit the Panama Canal, one of the world's key strategic artificial waterways. From Gatun Lake to the Pacific Ocean, the full day journey through the Isthmus of Panama is 77 kilometres long and will take you through three locks and see the ship descend 27 metres.

Day 5 - Darién National Park

Darien National Park is one of the most important World Heritage-listed sites in Central America and is only accessible by water on a small ship.

It is one of the few remaining examples in the world of a protected area inhabited by humans.

Day 6 - Isla Gorgona (Colombia)

Lying off the coast of Colombia, this tiny atoll has transformed itself from an island prison to a wildlife sanctuary. Onshore you will discover monkeys, caimans, the colourful blue-footed booby, the magnificent frigate bird and the endemic anole, the world's only pure blue lizard. The deep blue waters around the island host an abundance of marine life.

Day 7 - 8 - At sea

Relax on board your floating resort and perhaps indulge in a leisurely breakfast served on your private verandah by your butler.
